I'm excited to say there is another Deere joining the family! This purchase originally started with a Z930M but the price of that got a little hefty with a bagging system and I wanted to save a little money for a saw mill. This then led me to the X320, but quickly decided the better "hill-handling" of the X500 made more sense. Then I drove it back to back against the X530 and power steering became a necessity. My dealer did me a solid on the price difference between the two.
Added the triple bag system and a yard roller. Might get a seeder/fertilizer for it, but haven't decided on which tractor that makes the most sense for (have a 4052M too).
My main reasons for the X530:
- Power steering
- triple bag capable
- more aggressive tires
- heavier than X3**
- takes a 54" deck
I recently cleared another acre and left a few trees along with building up some hillsides. So, I've got hilly, somewhat wet areas spread across 2 acres of grass that I might extend further.
Just waiting on the bagging system now...
